Hello Lewis,

The Live Access Server (LAS) is a highly configurable web server and designed to provide flexible access to geo-referenced scientific data. It can present distributed data sets as a unified virtual data base through the use of DODS networking. Ferret is the default visualization application used by LAS, though other applications (Matlab, IDL, GrADS, ...) can also be used.

The server portion of LAS is written in Java and should run on any Ferret supported Unix / Linux platform.
You can find more details on LAS at:
http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/LAS/documen ... chitecture


More details on APIs for the LAS javascript components and some best practices for using them can be found at: http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/LAS/documen ... s-overview


A LAS product request is sent from a web page to the server encoded in XML and it does this through a javascript API.
More information on the API for the LAS Request javascript component can be found at:
http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/LAS/documen ... uest-jsdoc

LAS Response javascript wrapper helps with handling of the JSON LAS Response object returned by the product server.
More information on the API for the LAS Response javascript component can be found at:

Developer Documentation is available at:

Hope this helps.

This is great Sandra. I am going to implement L3 Subsetting capabilities in Podaacpy. The links you've provided are super useful. I'll update this thread when this is done. Thank you Sandra. :D
